Sound is a bit wonky, sorry, that's how it was when I got it. But man, what a great song and version, it reminds me a bit of Junior Senior, just the exuberance and freshness. Anyways, yeah.

This is a perfect example of how awful they really are. Did their label come up with that terribly performed arrangement?. Crash and Burn.

I'm so hard-up for comments I'll even take anonymous negative ones! But really, you didn't like that arrangement? It was right-on, so well-balanced and performed, it was good enough to be a recorded studio session song I thought (maybe not the mp3 wonkiness occurring). To each his own, I know the hype is huge for these guys, but I say well worth it.

I love, love, love the Black Kids and this cover of Estelle is ok, I just like Estelle's version so much better...it's like when Kate Nash covered the Black Kids.

I liked it and I am not familiar with the Estelle version. They're a great band.
